Roberto Santiago is a name that is certainly familiar to residents of Brazil. As the man who is responsible for the construction of the premier shopping mall of Brazil, Maniara Shopping Mall, there are no shortage of citizens who are aware of his accomplishments. What they are not always aware of is the true genius behind all of the decisions that he has made.
For the majority of his life, Roberto Santiago has been the type of forward thinker that the business world needs. He is someone who does not believe in maintaining the status quo and he is always looking for ways to improve upon current situations.
Roberto Santiago is the type of entrepreneur that every region needs. He has a keen eye for what is needed and will always take the proper steps towards providing it. His mission to provide the people of the Joao Pessoa region with a shopping mall that they could be proud of began when he was still young.
As a child, he noticed that the area lacked a shopping mall that provided residents with access to all of the stores of their choices. Furthermore, he came to realize that local residents were not only spending their money elsewhere, but they were also forced to foot the bill for their travel fees.
After graduating from college with a degree in business administration, he worked for Cafe Rosa just long enough to realize that he was wasting his natural talents. To Roberto Santiago, the prospect of working for someone every day paled in comparison to the idea of starting a business of his own.
Cafe Rosa had taught him enough about the home decor business to start a successful venture of his own in the same field. It also allowed him to collect the revenue that he would need to purchase the land that would eventually become the home of Maniara Shopping Mall.
He used his profits wisely and constructed one of the finest shopping establishments that the area has ever seen. It did not take long for the mall to become the major entertainment hub of the area. Roberto Santiago also realized the importance of versatility. The mall provides a number of different activities for each visitor. They are able to work out at the gym or grab a bite to eat at the food court.
There are also theaters and concert halls that allow residents to enjoy state of the art entertainment on a regular basis. All it took was two years for him to develop the land and thanks to his unique brand of genius, he is able to sidestep all of the issues that took place for other business during the recent economic crisis.
